Former Pittsfield-based Pharmacist Sentenced For Stealing Pills

Staff Reports
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A former pharmacist was sentenced in federal court on Tuesday to three years in prison for stealing OxyContin from Price Chopper and filling prescriptions with other drugs, the Boston Globe is reporting.

Nichole Bombardier, 31, of Cheshire pleaded guilty to tampering with consumer products charges in federal court in March 2010. Prosecutors claim Bombardier stole at least 239 OxyContin from three different bottles from the Pittsfield Price Chopper pharmacy between May and September of 2008. At least one customer was hospitalized after taking medication used to treat high blood pressure instead of the painkiller.

Bombardier was also sentenced earlier in the week to repay $15,500 in fines and restitution to her former employer and patient.

A two-vehicle accident on Sunday afternoon on Route 8 in Cheshire sent four people to Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield.

According to state police, Geoffrey Duval of Adams was making a lefthand turn, heading south, from the parking lot of Whitney's Farmstand in a green Chevrolet Cavalier shortly before 1 p.m. when he struck a northbound Honda CRV driven by David Malacarne, 54, of Pittsfield. Duval was taken to North Adams Regional Hospital with minor injuries.

Malacarne, his wife, Mary, and another passenger were taken to BMC where they were treated and released.  State police cited Duval for failure to use care when turning.
